About Biogen


What is it like to work for Biogen

Leadership
Leadership
Biogen strives to be an open organisation and to communicate frequently and openly with the wider employee population. This is an increasing challenge as the business grows, but in order to maintain this high level of engagement the leadership team and CEO hold bi-weekly 'Speed Updates' at which many members of the Biogen team contribute the achievements of the past fortnight. In addition there is a monthly Bulletin which provides an opportunity for the CEO to communicate key thoughts, milestones and forward looking challenges across the entire business.
Wellbeing
Wellbeing
Biogen seeks to support all employees and it provides annual occupational health assessments, information on a monthly basis by newsletter and posters, e.g. 'Stoptober', cycle to work scheme and access to discounted gym facilities.
Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
Biogen undertook a community project this summer to refurbish a former local pub in order for it to be used as a tea room and training centre for a charity that supports adults with learning difficulties - Beds Garden Carers. Employees from across the business were able to take part, giving up their time both inside and outside of working hours.  Biogen also supports the local Bedford Christmas Food Bank where staff are encouraged to donate food that goes to the homeless at Christmas.
